I 've got great response so far on the piece I'm doing for Ensemble for New Music (ENM) - TheMusArt, premiere in the beginning of next year. Yesterday we briefly tried out the beginning of the piece. "TheMusArt" stands for Theater, Music and Art, and the piece constitutes of 36 sections whereof less than half of them is short passages of actual notated music, the rest is written instructions. Apart from the immediate experience of unpredictability, I also think that the piece raises some interesting questions, mainly about the nature of different art forms. In our time the differences between the performing arts are blurred. Can you actually separate them? Is it a piece of music, because it involves musicians? Is it dance because it includes motion? Is it theater with actors with musical instruments? Maybe it is an inter-artistic collage!? Or could it all be summarized as live art?

Here I publish information of the music I've written. I also blog about my projects and thoughts about music in general.

I am a contemporary classical composer and compose music for classical musicians, but as you can see from my worklist I've also done other things - including live electronics, electroacoustic music (eam) and music for other types of ensembles (e.g. a jazz trio).

My works have been performed globally, including Europe, Asia and North America.
